1. Learn and understand - all about an estuary, what is actually happening to the water of Long Island Sound, what impact do we the citizens have on it. 2. Students will be involved in citizen science project - A Day in the Life of the Nissequogue River, collecting samples for scientists. 3. Learning from New York State Department of Environment Education experts how to make the necessary changes to improve the quality of water entering the sound. Planning , taking the actions, and educating our community.
Project will bring together the community members and the Park authority to share good means of protecting the buffer zones It will establish nurseries for indigenous and exotic tree species to be replanted into disturbed catchments It will form school environmental clubs for environmental knowledge dissemination, nursery establishment and management. School clubs will extend tree planting and conservation knowledge with community members in protected areas especially in buffer zones and catchments. Collaborate with village leaders in forming environmental conservation by-laws.
Students will explore a small section of the Bargo river and produce digital objects to be be included in a virtual interactive river. Examples of digital objects are videos (documentaries), musical compositions, slide presentations, photographs, creative writing, field guides and models. The project encourages students to explore their academic and as such, provides opportunities to employ many of Gardner's Multiple intelligences. The project will result in a fully integrated interactive site that can be accessed by the public.

We are building up a base as a university approved organization. We hope to put together a Passport event every year. Passport events are required by freshmen. We will also hold community events in order to educate the community of the necessity of being conscientious of the environment when making life decisions. We have already held a fossil dig for sharks teeth at a local creek and hope to partner with NC Zoo and other organizations on various projects.
The project target school children and young parents. We organize talks, outings and school activities to create an awareness.

Bokashi workshop was organized as a part of the Slow Festival in Katowice in Silesia. These workshops have already became the formula with tradition inmany countries. We decided to install its in Poland. Bokashi teach art workshops environmental protection by using a method based on properties of probiotic strains of bacteria - their ability to ferment and antioxidation. We follow them mostly for children and adolescents due to educational and therapeutic qualities. Working with the original material in the form of clay, water, cane molasses, bran cereal, which under the influence of beneficial bacterias changes, shows what power resides in nature and provides the cognitive world of microorganisms. Coincidental combination of these ingredients creates leaven the dough of clay, in which microbes multiply. With such a mass one can model their own Bokashi balls - mud vehicles to transport micro-organisms in to degraded aquatic ecosystems. In this environment, the dose of bacteria derived from bullets is able to restore the biological balance. In Chorzow we have set our table with bowls for ingredients to make balls in the workshop area of the festival. There came different people, mostly children, some of theme were "brave" enough to touch balls without gloves (what, after all we wanted! touching the ground bare hand and feel it). We tipped balls workshop participants to be able to fertilize their organic flowers, lawns, and most of all bodies of water, or symbolically toss balls to their home rivers that flow through their place of living. We hope that such workshops inoculated in young budding minds of the cops thought that grows out of close contact with the ground, the rescue polluted rivers, lakes and joints. Workshops like this in a big scale would be the possibility to revitalise rivers, lakes or even seas.
It's already been started... a campaign has sprung in Bang Sai Witthaya School (Bang Sai District) in Ayutthaya Province. They are the first school to take action – where they developed a recycling program and brought awareness to their community.
